I recently stumbled upon this article in Business Insider “7 Habits from Navy SEALs that will make you more successful” and really liked it. I believe that these habits not only make you more successful, they lead to better relationships with others, lead to more interesting conversations and are therefore principles to live by.
So here are the 7 habits in the short form:
- Be loyal.
- Put others before yourself.
- Be reflective.
- Be obsessively organized.
- Assume you don’t know enough.
- Be detail-oriented.
- Never get comfortable.
When looking at these 7 routines I realize that I still have a lot of room for improvement, especially when it comes to organization and detail-orientation. However, I believe that I could do much worse for the first three so I believe I am on a good track and hope that I’ ll continue to get better at the others.
